Zoë Kravitz Chills With Michelob Ultra In Superbowl Sunday Quiet Moments Commercial

ELLE US shares Zoë Kravitz’s upcoming Michelob Ultra Super Bowl Sunday commercial, and it’s as chill as she is. Kravitz has made drinking beer — well, soothing. The ‘Big Little Lies’ actor whispers quietly into two giant microphones, opening her bottle of Michelob Ultra against a lush green vista of low-range mountains and cascading waterfalls.

Directed by Emma Wastenberg with a mostly female production team, the commercial is positively tranquil, a palate cleanser in a raucous, high-stakes football game.

Love those earrings Zoë Kravitz!

Adriana Lima Is Radiant In Chopard's 'Magical Setting' Collection, Lensed By Michael Schwartz

What better place than Miami for Adriana Lima to showcase luxe jeweler Chopard’s new Magical Setting collection. Photographer Michael Schwartz captures the shimmering diamonds clustered in floral shapes in a unique, breakthrough collection of necklaces, earrings and rings. Elizabeth Sulcer styles Adriana with hair by Peter Gray and makeup by Georgi Sandev.

The skills of the maison's high jewellery department are put to task with this new setting, as the diamonds seem to be floating freely, with no links or claws holding them together. They come together in an explosion of sparkle, unencumbered by heavy metal prongs or claws, as if linked together by the tap of a wand. The collection features diamonds, blue sapphires from Sri Lanka, rubies from Mozambique and Madagascar, or emeralds from Colombia and Zambia. Each flower is anchored by a focal stone, that's surrounded by an array of precious gems.

Bern explains that given that “I’ll always be ‘alien’ as a black person in America’, originally from Jamaica, she wears clothes from people who have her back. Literally. Bern bagged dressing to assimilate for years, trading her lower style profile to dressing to be seen in clothes created by black designers.

I have found community in black-owned boutiques. Martine’s Dream, in the heart of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, brings to mind the Caribbean with its island-inspired, bohemian-chic airy cotton dresses and skirts, its kimonos and caftans. TracyChambers Vintage and Indigo Style Vintage, also both Brooklyn-based, sell timeless pieces— from sweaters reminiscent of Denise Huxtable’s wardrobe on The Cosby Show to pleated dresses with shoulder pads and gold buttons that are very Clair Huxtable.

From Motherhood To Mossad Agent, Diane Kruger Is 'In the Lead' Lensed By Benjamin Vnuk For Porter Edit Jan 25, 2019

From Motherhood To Mossad Agent, Diane Kruger Is 'In the Lead' Lensed By Benjamin Vnuk For Porter Edit Jan 25, 2019

Actor Diane Kruger is styled by Tracy Taylor in sensual neutrals for ‘In the Lead’, lensed by Benjamin Vnuk for Porter Edit January 25, 2019.

Kruger sits down with Jane Mulkerrins for a chat on motherhood and possible marriage, and the secret training involved in her role as an Israeli intelligence Mossad agent in the upcoming film ‘The Operative.

“We had to do some strange things,” Kruger explains. “Like having to convince a stranger in the street to walk you somewhere, and having to knock on someone’s door and convince them to let you into their home.” Kruger poses as tourist in the city. “And if you act believably, most people will go out of their way to help you,” she reflectgs out loud. “But I found it really hard to lie to people like that.” Even worse was training requiring her to travel through airport security on a fake passport. “There was a real possibility of getting arrested. It was terrifying.”

Lies, Lies & More Lies

If lies and deception are unsettling, Kruger must abandon her inner voice for her role in a second film ‘Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy’. ‘JT LeRoy’ (played on screen by Kristen Stewart) was presented in an elaborate hoax that fooled both Hollywood and the publishing industry in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Presented as a literary wunderkind and the author of “several supposedly semi-autobiographical books detailing a luridly hardscrabble childhood”, JT LeRoy was an entirely fictitious character, “created by writer Laura Albert, and played – in glasses and a wig – by her sister-in-law Savannah Knoop. “ Knoop (portrayed by Laura Dern in the film) co-wrote the screenplay.

Why Sierra Leonean Women Don’t Feel Protected By Domestic Violence Laws

Why Sierra Leonean Women Don’t Feel Protected By Domestic Violence Laws

By Luisa T. Schneider, Postdoctoral research fellow, Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology. First published on The Conversation

Sierra Leone has a long history of sexual and gender based violence, dating back to the colonial era and stretching into the years of independence which began in 1961. The country’s civil war, which raged between 1991 and 2002, brought international attention to the high levels of violence against women.

In this way, Sierra Leone is similar to many young democracies in Africa with a violent history; it struggles with patriarchal attitudes and high levels of violence against women and girls.

After the war, several legal changes were made to try and address this kind of violence. One was the Domestic Violence Act, ratified in 2007. It criminalises all forms of violence – physical, sexual, emotional and economic — against women and outlines strict punishments for perpetrators.
